Yakiniku - 8/01/2012
Most reviews of Takumi (Melbourne) raved about the melt-in-your-mouth wagyu beef so there I headed. Ok, the various types of beef cuts were delicious but wait, there’s more. As I stepped into the posh restaurant when it opened at 6pm for dinner I did not detect any BBQ smell in the air associated with grilling/BBQing eateries. Unusual…. The (yakiniku) grill crockery would have seen grease over its lifespan yet it was spotlessly clean or even sparkling round the edges. Unusual…. I slowly felt the heat from the charcoal as the grill warmed up. Good time to exfoliate my face while I wait, I thought to myself. The place must have turbo-charged the air-con as we were comfortably cool upon leaning back on our seats. I have been thoroughly entertained yakiniku-ing my food. The staff were welcoming and responsive too. This restaurant was unusually right in many ways.
